Intimate Blue & White Country Chic Fall Wedding

 The venue for this blue & white country chic wedding wasn’t your typical wedding venue. It was held at Morgan’s, grandparents property. When you arrive the first thing you see is this big two story white house, rustic barns, & sheds.  The girls got ready in the top half of the house, and you’ll never guess how old this house actually is.

200 years old. The house is over 200 years old.(Dating back to the pre-civil war era.) And it is beautiful! Her grandparents have done a wonderful job restoring this beautiful house.

Since the property was so small, it was the perfect place for their intimate wedding. They had only wanted a small gathering of family & a few close friends to celebrate their big day & new life with.

But the most important part of the whole day, was when Morgan went to see her grandfather who couldn’t make it to the ceremony. He wanted to be there. But due to sickness, there wasn’t any way he could.

So Morgan, Hayden, & I,  piled into her sisters car, and made our way over. He was so happy to hear that they had come. You could just feel the love all throughout that room, as they talked & laughed with him. He had suffered with diabetes for sometime, & had been bed ridden. He was no loner able to see, but he knew. He knew that she was the most beautiful bride. His smile just said it all.

He grabbed Morgan & Hayden’s hands, gave sound words of wisdom, & was so tickled to be included in their big day. (There were lots of tears shed. Including me.)

Morgan, & Hayden I wish you nothing but the best & happiest years to come. I hope that you have the BEST honeymoon to start your new life off!




The bridesmaids made the sweetest entrance with the song “Perfect” (Duet) – Ed Sheeran feat. Beyonce. But as soon as Morgan’s song came on, “Them” by Brad Paisley, and she made her way around………. *cue those tears!*  This was just the sweetest moment when Hayden saw her for the first time.

The moment she knew……..she was about to marry the love of her life.

They were eagerly waiting for that exit music to start! Can you tell they are excited?!?

I just love the blissful look on his face. 🙂

Ya’ll I was here for this buffet! Especially those chicken wings!

Hayden’s sweet little nana decided to draw a pair of lips on his forehead. It’s just one of those sweet memories you’ll look back on for years to come.

Check out these beautiful rhinestone boots!
